The Government’s November 2000 Rural White Paper stated that Parish Plans should “identify key facilities and services, set out the problems that need to be tackled and demonstrate how distinctive character and features can be preserved”. They should set out a vision for the community in the future and identify the action needed to tackle issues of concern in addition to including everything that is relevant to the people who live and work in the community, from employment needs to playgrounds. The Parish Plan should consult everyone and give them a chance to say what they think about the social, economic and environmental issues affecting them and how they’d like to see their community improved during the next 5, 10 or even 15 years. The whole community has to be involved, not just those who come along to Parish Council meetings.
Stock & Bradley Parish Plan
The Parish Plan initiative has been developed through the support and sponsorship of the Countryside Agency with further assistance from the Parish Council, Wychavon District Council and Community First. The purpose of the Parish Plan is to set out a vision for the
future development of our community and how that will be achieved. It will:
- reflect the views of all sections of the community
- identify features and local characteristics that people value
- identify local needs and opportunities
- set out a vision of how people want this community to develop in the future
- nclude an Action Plan to achieve this vision.
